RE: DC-DC Charger Wiring Input Suggestions

I used a set of these two-pole Pollack connectors. Male and Female 2-Pole Pollack Connector I mounted it (female end) on the underside of the left wing. From the Anderson connector in the truck bed I have a short pigtail with the male Pollack connector on the other end. I connect it up during when loading the camper.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Replaced the ICP sensor on my 2003 F350 6.0 PSD. I was blessed in that the CEL (check engine light) came on after my long trip last month to Yellowstone and the Tetons. Grabbed the DashBoss to download the codes then changed a few settings on my DashBoss engine monitor to pull up the voltage on the ICP sensor - ZERO nada. Confirmed it was toast. If you have not changed an ICP sensor on a 6.0 2003 and later you've not had a reason to cuss Ford Engine engineers!! It is located in the far rear (looking from the bumper aft) of the engine compartment just left of center and behind the turbo. You can either attack it from the bottom or the top. I choose the top - have to remove the intake, air cleaner, FICM, FICM Bracket, rear intake bolt and pig tail to the IPR valve JUST for access. Next, you better hpe you can get your 27MM or 1 1/16th socket onto the sensor in the compacted area. Regardless, it took me awhile but total success - CEL light off.

RE: ALL NEW Onan Cummins 2500i inverter generator - I LOVE IT!

For those interested in the upgrade I just checked with Cummings last week. It's a 20 Week lead time for non OEM customers. They are pumping these out to the OEMs as fast as they can to meet manufacturer demand. You can find them on-line for about a grand more (if you want it quick) than you'll pay to wait. I put my name on the order list to replace my Onan 2.5 KVD LP Genny which, interestingly enough, the control board failed on coming back from Jellystone last week. Just FYI if your Genny only runs when you have to hold the "start" button down you've had a control board failure. I intend to just drop mine from the camper to replace the board since trying to unscrew the four cover screws that seem to be torqued down by a gorrilla at the factory have been unsuccessful....but I digress. From my research, here are some of the Part #s you'll need to make the swap: Part Number Description A063N9302.5HGLAA-8304 0155-2325Alum Steel TailpipeKit 0155-2449 Exhaust Resonator 0155-1015 Pipe Clamp The LP input line is on the opposite side of the current model, same with the power. Additionally, the exhaust exits the Driver side vs the passenger side on the current model. Hence the additional Muffler and accessory tailpipe kit. I intend to install the resonator to see if it makes an additional reduction in Db without degrading Genny performance.

deltabravo, can you include the part numbers of the Cummings accessories you needed (exhaust etc.) to complete your install? Or, even links to the pages you found? I'm sure as time goes on this post will be referenced hundreds of times as folks upgrade to the Onan 2500 HGLAA like me ;) Thanks!!!

RE: Roadside Assistance

Here's my experience. The water pump housing on my 6.0 ripped apart. I had USAA. I called them and all they found were tow companies that would only tow "IF" the camper was removed from the dually. Here's what three tow companies told me. "They don't want the liability of towing the truck and camper as they've had to many rear jacks contact the ground and cause major damage." I get it. Plus, read your tow agreement. Most of them will "only" tow to the nearest repair shop (mileage limited). So beware if you've got the house strapped to the bed of the truck it's most likely gonna have to come off...(where/when/how really depends on the location, the condition of the truck, and where you can put the house).

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Finished up my Victron Energy BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor and Victron Energy Orion-Tr Smart 12/12-Volt 30 amp 360-Watt DC-DC Charger, Isolated (Bluetooth) install today. Even though the BMV is Bluetooth, and accessible via the smart phone, I still mounted the display on the status wall for quick viewing. Turned out sweet!

RE: Opinions on lightweight portable inverter/generators

Numerous Campgrounds, and even National Parks, are getting real testy on Generator noise. I just saw that Yellowstone National Park has LIMITED Generators from 8am until 8pm in Seven parks (Bay Bridge, Canyon, Fishing Bridge, Grant Village, Madison, Mammoth and Norris). There is a noise limit of 60 decibels. I know just ONE Genny that can operate under load at that noise level. Check out the dBA Chart at 100% Load

RE: About to leave, truck batteries are dead question

Yep, it's your truck. As a 6.0 Ford PowerStroke owner I'll add some things to ponder (not from experience--sarcasm). If you rely on your Trucks alternator to "charge" your Camper batteries you should definitely think about a bigger alternator than stock or OEM. I replaced my OEM alternator five years ago and all my truck electrical issues vanished -- full stop. Since I had plenty of "amperage" available I even added a 6AWG line to charge my batteries separately---I could have never done that with an OEM Alternator. My Leece Neville 230 AMP alternator will charge at idle--you're OEM will struggle if not provide zero charging capability. Go on-line and invest in a 230AMP alternator - Trust me, You will kick yourself for not doing it a long time ago. I'd also offer that you need to replace your truck batteries as a pair. Since they are below 12.6V I'd charge them up. I've bought new batteries before and had one go bad - not uncommon. Take your new batteries back to the place you bought them and have them do a "Load" test. You'll know immediately if you have a bad battery and they should replace it for free if you are still in the warranty period. Another word of caution. Just because your Truck battery gets a jump to start does not mean it'll charge. An alternator requires V to excite the alternator. Generators do not. Lots of folks learn this the hard way. If you can afford it get AGMs for the diesel. Here's a link to a 230AMP. You can search on-line for the best prices. Be advised Leece Neville's are produced in the US. So, there are Chineeesm Knockoffs (go figure). Buy from a reputable dealer. Leece Neville 230 AMP

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Installed my shunt for the battery monitor. Its below the sink behind the floor storage wall next to the Hot water tank (the wood strips on the floor is where the sink compartment wall mount). https://i.imgur.com/Ox5qHr9l.jpg I crimped the copper lugs on with my hydraulic crimper, heat shrinked the connection then added a silicone boot and secured it in place. https://i.imgur.com/xfNF3xFl.jpg It was a perfect spot - right at the bend from the main 2AWG NEG Battery cable as it ascends into the basement power center in the Artic Fox 990. The extra lug on the "load" side is my 6AWG cable going to my DC-DC charger. https://i.imgur.com/JSbE5Q7l.jpg

RE: Ship truck and camper to Hawaii

Used these guys to ship my SUV when I moved to Hawaii. The price wasn't bad and overall it was a painless experience. Good luck. https://www.matson.com/ship-your-car-with-matson-2.html

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Closed all the vents and put in the 110V automatic temp heater to keep the interior warm during the cold evening temps.
